Inspired by women who less railed against the status quo, than simply refused to acknowledge it.

 
 
 
 

Made in Italy 

We work exclusively with Italian manufacturers and suppliers – for the most part small, artisanal, family run companies – with whom we have built up close personal working relationships with over the last 10 years. We search extensively for our leathers and carefully select these from Italian tanneries. For us colour must sing and vibrate, leathers must feel opulent and sensuous – our suedes are soft and velvety to the touch their colour rich and vibrant.

The designer, Heather Blake

Heather Blake is a footwear designer with a fine art background and a love for experimental craftsmanship. Always a nomad, since graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2006 she has moved constantly between London and Italy working as a designer and developer for such luxury fashion brands as Alberta Ferretti, Salvatore Ferragamo, Missoni and Charlotte Olympia.

As a designer, Heather is inspired by such women as Nancy Cunard, Frida Kahlo, Elizabeth Blackwell, and Nina Simone: elegant iconoclasts all; women who less railed against the status quo than simply refused to acknowledge it – qualities which can be seen in the people she works with and the shoes she makes.

 
 
 

Eva Blake shoes, are as visually striking and subtly subversive as they are luxurious on the feet.
